I think you will agree that it is "fit for purpose"!
In this picture you can see it next to the Gaillardia "Arizona Sun", together adding a great splash of "sunshine" to the otherwise mostly green Mark's Veg Plot.
Even before they are fully open, the flowers of this plant are very interesting.
From an initial criss-cross configuration, the petals unfold one by one.
One of the best aspects of a plant like this is that it produces multiple blooms - very different to the one-off blooms of, say, the Daffodil. I'm hoping that these flowers will keep on coming until late September at least.
